See Compromise On Farm Measure By BERNARD BRENNER United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI)' — Administration officials were optd- mistic today that the Senate would accept a new compromise version of President Kennedy's plan to cul cosily farm surpluses wilh tough crop controls. Senale debate on the administration's omnibus farm bill opened Monday. Pro-administration senators launched a drive to write inlo the bill Ihe original version of Kennedy's wheat control plan and a softened, compromise version of his feed grain control plan, ! Administration sources said Ihe Senate vote on these two sections, the heart oc the lengthy farm bill, probably would be close. But they said preliminary checks indicated the administration plans would squeak through by a taw votes. Five farm organizations, meanwhile, urged the Senate lo approve the administration-backed grain control plans. A sixth, the nation's largest, galled Tor defeat of the bill whether or not it is stiffened by approval of administration amendments proposed Monday. Backing Ihe bifl were the National Grange, National Farmers Union, National Farmers Organization, NationSl Association of Wheat Growers, and Missouri Farmers Association. Opposing it was the American Farm Bureau Federation. Chairman Allen J. Ellender, D- La., of the Senate Agriculture Committee, spearheading the floor fight to write the administration grjiin controls back into the farm bill, said he hoped the Senate would begin voting Wednesday, Plan Cleanup Block Parties Several residential. "Clean-up" block parlies have been scheduled for Thursday and one for the downtown area will be held at 8 a.m. in the 'Gourmet Cafeteria, according to Douglas Nash, manager c-f the Logansport Area Chamber of Commer.ee. Nash said Wednesday several industries in the city have started painting programs, re-landscaped the area surrounding their plants and several old buildings have been torn down. Saturday is the final day of the second annual "Clean-up,. Paint- up, Fix-up" week in Logansport. The Senate Agriculture Committee sent the farm bill to the floor without Kennedy's plan lo require lhat feed grain producers choose in a referendum between stiff acreage controls and abolition of government price sup ports. The committee bill also would give wheat farmers a choice between extension of this year's wheat acreage reduction plan and a much tougher surplus - cutting plan backed by the administra lion. In place of the administration feed grain program, the committee bill would extend for a year the present voluntary program un ; der .which farmers get government payments if they agree lo reduce acreage. Lawmakers Turn On Sexy Movies WASHINGTON (UPI).- Lawmakers who have probed smut in the mail, violence on television, and pornography in the book stalls had their eye today on sex in the movies.

The criticism extended also lo off-screen conducl of some of the stars.

INDIANAPOLIS (UPI).--The state chairmen of the Republican and Democratic parties agreed today that • patronage should continue to prevail in. the top .and bottom echelons of Indiana government. The two men—Republican Chairman Thomas Gallmeyer, Fort Wayne, and Democratic Chairman Manfred Core, Vincennes—generally do not agree, While, they differed on which party deserved control of patronage when they appeared before the Governor's Committee on Administration, tihe two maintained remarkably similar positions; Core spoke first, then left, and Gallmeyer entered the conference axiom; so that neither knew what the other' said. The GCOA, composed primarily of business and industrial executives, is seeking to determine whether the present role of political patronage and merit jobs in state government should be changed—and which way. Present Ratio Best Core and Gallmeyer 'both agreed tie present ratio seems the 'best, with • some internal revisions to give tenure to technical people who are needed tout who would not lake a stale job if they thought the work meant a change wilh each admindstraUon, At .present, about 60 per cent of the state employes -are on some form of merit, and 40 per cent are subject to patronage. Core' said, "If everything is merit, how can you make revisions when a new governor comes hi? A merit em- ploye 'becomes useless as a political thinker and becomes a fence straddler." Core also ' -commented that "merit is severely abused." He said some pel-sons had been fired LISTENS TO BOSS ROPSLEY, England (UPI)— Leslie Doughty was fined $5.60 for driving wrong when he failed to observe a "Keep Left" sign despite this alibi: "The wife said turn right, so I did." .JFK ON RADIO-TV WASHINGTON (UPI) — President Kennedy's news conference at 4 p.m., EOT, today will be broadcast live by all major radio networks and by NBC lelevision.

Demo, GOP Agree Patronage Needed as patronage employes by thej State Highw.ay Department and had been hired back by the mental institutions as merit workers. Core defended the role, of the political party in getting'jobs for his faithful-workers, saying, "We tell them,, we'll help you get {lie job, but we won't help you keep it." He said' that if a loyal Democrat turned oiit to be unsatisfactory after getting Ms patronage job, "I'd expect Ms supervisor to fire ,(him, and I'd back up the supervisor." Core warned that if Indiana •were to adopt an all-merit system of government, as a few states have, flu; parlies might be reduced to, "selling ads .in yearbooks" :to finance their campaigns Core offered as a definition of which employes should be on merit: "One who is difficult to re- plaice." Right To A Change Gallmeyer said "people have a right it) .a change when they vote in a a mew administration." He said h«'itelt a governor would be completely ''hamstrung" if there were no way of putting his own people in .command posts. "My experience is that the pa tronageninerit system has been handled very well in Indiana," Gallmeyer declared, conceding he was not too experienced in getting Republicans state jobs, 'but, "I hope to get' more, experience la'ter." Welsh is a Democrat. "I'd hate .to see any further encroachment by the merit system," the GOP chief said. He said, 'however, he preferred merit sys. tern to. the bipartisan method used in some Indiana departments which are supposedly half Republican and half Democrat.
